Well renowned Dancehall deejay & Jag One Productions (J.O.P) leader, Sheldon “Aidonia” Lawrence has officially inked a management deal with Vybz Kartel’s former business partner, Corey Todd. Aidonia becomes the latest artiste to join forces with the successful American businessman. Former Vybz Kartel protégé, JahVinci as well as the Portmore Empire’s former producer, Ainsley “Notnice” Morris & the self-professed “King Of The Dancehall,” Beenie Man have also linked with Todd within the last two months. Todd confirmed the deal during an interview on Wednesday.
According to reports, part of Aidonia’s deal with Todd includes the “Jackhammer” singer doing marketing related work as well as endorsements for a new product line that Todd will soon be unveiling. Todd did not reveal details on what exactly that product line will be about but says in the meantime that Aidonia will be endorsing his latest project, “Yaad Swag Rum.” Furthermore, Todd is insisting that Aidonia will be an integral part of the new network that he’s building with the likes of JahVinci & Beenie Man as he aims to promote prosperity & unity within Dancehall music, without any bias.
Aidonia released a statement expressing his excitement at the opportunity of working with Corey Todd and believes that this move will boost his career moving forward. The move was sealed after weeks of talks according to the J.O.P deejay. Meanwhile, Aidonia has released new material making waves on Jamaican radio including the Dre Day produced, “Summer Sun,” & “Bad Pickney” on Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor’s Bad Acid Riddim.
Corey Todd is renowned for his long time business partnership with Vybz Kartel as they promoted products such as Daggering Condoms and, most notably the Street Vybz Rum brand. They later created the weekly party series, “Street Vybz Thursdays” the nightclub formerly known as “The Building.” However, Todd severed ties from Kartel & the Portmore Empire in May following alleged death threats that “Di Teacha” made against his life.
Since severing ties with Kartel, Todd’s teamed with Beenie Man to promote their new line of rum products, “Yaad Swag Rum.” Todd is now also the spokesperson for the remodeled “Club Riddim,” the nightclub previously known as “The Building,” & “Asylum Nightclub.” Club Riddim reopened on July 1st & “Yaad Swag Thursdays” officially launched 6 days later.
